of a new law in russia that bars american citizens from adopting russian children. president vladimir putin has signed the law, which places new strains on bilateral relations. >> the new law comes in response to american legislation that withholds visas to russians accused of human rights violations and freezes their u.s. assets. >> most bills signed by president putin have not been subjected to so much public scrutiny, but the ban on americans adopting russian children is controversial, so putin's strategy is to appeal to russian patriotism. >> as far as i know from opinion polls, the vast majority of russian citizens have a negative opinion of foreigners adopting our children. russia can and must look after its own children. >> at the same time, a russian judge acquitted a former prison doctor. human rights activists say he is responsible for the death of a russian lawyer in 2009. the lawyer was imprisoned after accusing russian officials of the $230 million tax fraud. since his death, relations beween the u.s. and russia have increasingly soured, culminating in the adoption van --over 7

now mr. vitaly churkin. he is russia's ambassador to the united nations. thank you for joining us. let me begin by asking you about the comment today made by your deputy foreign minister mr. bog don november. he said today "it is impossible to exclude a victory of the syrian opposition." how would you describe the situation in syria? >> well, you know i think he went on saying that the syrian government seems to be losing ground in the fighting with the opposition and i think this is obvious. but i don't think there is anything in that statement which one can welcome or not welcome. first of all, that doesn't mean that the trouble will end any time soon. the fighting may continue for a very long time still and the battle may keep going this way or the other way for a long time because you will recall when the crisis started the predictions were that it will last for two to four months and president assad is going to be toppled but that did not happen. another important thing to remember is that even if the current stage of the crisis were to end in the so-called victory of the oppositi

an indication that russia is finally facing reality and let's hope that this will lead to a reconfigure rags of the russian position. secretary clinton met with -- it may be that the united states and russia will now have an opportunity to work together. if russia could try to influence assad to leave as quickly as possible, that would certainly help the situation where too many people are being killed, and both russia and the united states have an interest in making sure that the chemical weapons stocks in syria don't fall into the hands of a radical islamist group or terrorist group which could happen in the event of the fall of the assad government, so american and russian interests may be converging at the end of this phase of the syrian conflict more than they were certainly, say, a year ago when russia was an unstinting supporter of the assad regime. >> nicolas burns, ending on an up note. thank you very much. >> good to see you. this just in. president obama moments ago outside the white house walking over to blair house talked about the state of the fiscal cliff talks in answer to a

russia, natural gas will be there right beside us. we found 200 years of natural gas is up price already. if natural gas is up price increase we can go back to drilling natural gas. we did analysis. if we export 6 billion cubic feet natural gas a day that will only impact the price ofenry hub natural gas by 20 cents per million cubic foot. a very small increase. hey, if you export it will double in price. that is not true. melissa: one of the problems as you're drilling down on the details here it is a gas. you have to turn it into a liquid in order to be able to load it on a ship. >> yes. melissa: and export it to another country. you need a terminal there where you can receive it, turn it back into gas. >> yeah. melissa: that adds a lot of money to the price. it still realistic under those metrics? it works because america has cheap natural gas right now and if you look atthe numbers, the $5 number it adds on top of the natural gas commodity price in america going to asia and 4.50 going to the europe, the difference is the panama canal toll way, about 50 cents there. at $3.60 this morn

at an example in the 1980's, boris yeltsin, the president of russia, the norwegians had a zero weather rocket that they launched in the direction of russia. then notify the russians, but this time the notification got lost in the mail. the russian generals came and said, look, apparently somebody has lost something in us across our horizon. this is an american nuclear attack you have to miss the launch or russia will be obliterated with no shots back. thankfully was sober that date. relations were good between the u.s. and the soviet union. he said to me you know, it can't be the americans attacking. when you talk about the u.s. and iran, is drolen iran, flight times, the attention, the chances of something going wrong , the escalation ending in disaster, that much higher. finally, you also have to be concerned about iran with a nuclear umbrella. oh, well, being more responsive. actually, history argues otherwise. if you look at pakistan, they became much more aggressive after they got. they started attacking in india knowing that the indians wanted to avoid getting into a nuclear exchange. i
not stand the wake of the soviet union. there was a movement in russia to and secrecy and to discuss the past openly. this was an authentic movement on the ground up and people at the top sympathize with it. the archives began to open in the '90s and were in some ways extraordinarily accessible working with western scholars. there are many instances of that. i did begin to have the impression pours into the '90s, i began to have the impression that one of the other reasons why they were open was because the russians were so preoccupied with other things at that time that they didn't really care. people have often said to me how as a young american, an american woman how cute you be wondering around those archives? i think the attitude was, she wants to look at old documents, so what? what? we are busy proof reforming our economy. what happened is putin became president of russia and he had a much more instrumental idea of what it was for anti-read politicized history and began to become much more conscious overworked history was told and how it was being told. this really trickles do
, india, china, russia, are helping them subvert sanctions they will stand by them an protect them even though they're widely exposed. adam: let's do a little bit of mathematics here. it is adding up what we've seen in the past few days. just yesterday the iranian regime said they were willing to let in nuclear inspectors if israel and their threat to attack was diffused and if western sanctions were to be eased. s what does that plus now the war exercises add up to? is the regime, on a precipice? are they falling and in turmoil or trouble? >> economically they certainly are. there is a lot of russelling going on the streets that the economy is not stable. they tried to do their own stimulus package a month ago and really didn't get much of a response. so the reel itself is failing. what they're doing to try to buy themselves political time while not giving away any posturing and letting their people know they're in fully control of their state, the region and they will not be pushed around. remember the other factor is the gulf cooperation council which has been unifying arab state gul
